Scrabble Anyone?

I love a good board game over summer with the family:-) My children are now teenagers and it is much harder to entice them into playing with me! At the end of last year a friend of mine was playing scrabble, on his iPhone, against his partner who was then living in Australia. This intrigued me, how cool that they could play a game together from different countries! Since then, I have utilised good old google and you tube to find out more! I am yet to get together with my family to give it a try and look forward to a weekend at the beach over Waitangi weekend to entice them. I am also going to introduce this concept to the teachers at Whangarei Primary and suggest children in different classes trial playing games of scrabble together:-) Would love to hear from anyone who has tried scrabble on the iPad/iPod out:-)

Jamming with VidRhythm

Thanks to our colleague DK for sharing this FUN and creative app with us recently, certainly promoted lots of laughter in the workplace:-) If I was really brave I would post our experimental video clip but 'not so brave' so check out this great example to give you the idea.

VidRhythm is a free app and I thoroughly recommend trialling it with your friends, whanau and students.  Try out the different songs and styles and share your musical talents!  There are lots of examples on You Tube to check out for ideas to inspire.
